That was fast: Cowell’s lover demands marriage and a reality show!


The married socialite expecting Simon Cowell’s baby was accused of being a ‘gold digger’ on Thursday. Lauren Silverman has allegedly issued the X Factor boss with a string of outrageous demands, telling him she wants marriage and her own reality TV show before she will allow him access to the child. And in divorce papers filed two weeks ago by her estranged spouse Andrew Silverman, Lauren was accused of being ‘cruel and inhuman’ towards her husband. Despite the controversy surrounding her, Lauren looked in good spirits and smiled for the cameras as she made her first public appearance since news of the unplanned pregnancy broke on Wednesday morning. In an official statement later that day, Lauren said: ‘I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son. I would hope for some space and privacy in order to work through this.’ Her lawyers, Robert Cohen and Bernard Clair of Cohen Clair Lans Greifer & Thorpe LLP, added: ‘We are working to resolve this situation in a fair and reasonable way that protects the best interests of our client and her son.’ MailOnline can reveal that Lauren and her estranged husband Andrew worked together to co-ordinate their statements, each emphasising that their seven-year-old son Adam was their joint priority.
